Determining the Bolt Pattern

The first number in the bolt pattern is the number of bolt holes. The second number denotes the diameter, in inches, of the circle on which the bolt holes sit.


Bolt Pattern - Even

On wheels with an even number of bolt holes, measure from the center of one bolt hole to the center of the hole directly across from it. (Example: "8 on 6-1/2" means 8 bolt holes with 6-1/2" from the center of one hole to the center of another on the opposite side.)


Bolt Pattern - Odd

To determine the bolt-circle diameter on wheels with an odd number of bolt holes, measure from the center of any bolt hole to the point halfway between the two bolt holes directly across from the first. (Example: "5 on 4-1/2" means 5 bolt holes with 4-1/2" measured to a point halfway between the opposite bolt holes.)


Bolt Pattern - Side

Measuring the distance (D) from the center of one bolt hole on the wheel to the center of a bolt hole right next to it can also help to determine the bolt pattern.

  • If D = 2-5/8", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-1/2"
  • If D = 2-3/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-3/4"
  • If D = 3", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5"
  • If D = 3-1/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5-1/2"

Video Transcript for Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly Installation

Today on our utility trailer, we'll be installing a Dexter axle, trailer hub and drum assembly, Part Number 84556UC3. We'll begin here by removing the wheel as well as the old drum and brake assembly. To remove the old drum, we'll need to first remove the dust cover. A large flat-head screwdriver works good to work in behind the edge, just kind of pry it out. We will be replacing the whole drum assembly, the bearings, as well as the lug nuts and the dust cover. We will need to save the castle nut and there is a flat washer behind it. In order to remove the castle nut, we'll need to take this cotter pin out right here, so we'll go ahead and bend it back.

We'll then go ahead and unthread the castle nut; go ahead and slide the drum a little bit. We will not be reusing any of the bearings from the old hub or drum assembly. Go ahead and set this one aside. Go ahead and pull the old drum assembly off. Go ahead and wipe off the grease from the spindle. Next we're going to need to remove the old brake assembly from the flange.

To do that, we'll need to remove these four bolts here. There is a nut on the back side that we'll be holding with the wrench as we remove the bolt. This is the brake assembly that we'll be using for the replacement. It's Part Number TRBK10E01. It is for a left-hand side. You can tell that by this brake shoe is smaller which means it's towards the front, and it'll also, the magnet will be on the bottom and will rotate towards the front.

There's a sticker labeled left side as well. The back side of it has four studs here that will go through the flange and on the back side we'll be putting a lock washer and a hex nut. The lock washer we'll be using is Part Number 5-8 and the nuts that we'll be using are Part Number 6-17. Now we'll go ahead and install our new brake assembly to the flange here. Go ahead and slide a lock washer on, followed by a hex nut. Go ahead and tighten down all the nuts. Next we're going to need to go ahead and pack our bearings and prep the drum to be put on the spindle.

We'll begin by going ahead and putting a little bit of grease in here on the race. Next we'll go ahead and take our inner bearing, which is the larger of the two bearings, and we'll go ahead and pack grease into them. To do this, we'll put some grease in the palm of our hand, then we'll work the bearing into the grease so that the grease pushes through. You can see how it's starting to come through there. You'll want to work all the way around on the bearing, making sure that you get grease all the way in. Now that we have our inner bearing packed, go ahead and set it into position. When you put it in, you see how it's kind of tapered or narrower on one side. The narrower side will go in first so that it matches up with the race that's already installed in the brake drum. Next we'll go ahead and take our seal here and it'll need to be put into the back side once you have the bearing put in place. Now in order to seat the seal, I'm going to go ahead and use a small block of wood and a hammer to tap it into position. You want the seal to go flush here. Next we'll go ahead and put a little grease back on the spindle. Now we'll go ahead and take our new drum and hub assembly and slide it into position. Next we'll go ahead and take some extra grease here, kind of pack it into the hub itself. Now we'll go ahead and take the outer bearing. We'll need to pack that one as well. Then we'll take our outer bearing, again, the tapered side or the narrower side will go in first. We'll be reusing the flat washer, as I said before, so we'll go ahead and slide the flat washer in followed by the castle nut. Go ahead and take a pair of chain locks here, tighten down the castle nut as we're spinning it. Now we're snug there, don't have any play really in it. It still spins freely. Right there is the hole for the cotter pin. Now it is a good idea to use a new cotter key whenever installing new hub assemblies or when you've removed it. The cotter pin that we'll be using is 165649. Go ahead and slide our new cotter pin in place. Once you put your cotter pin in place, go ahead and bend up the end so that the castle nut can't come loose. Here's the dust cap that we'll need to put on. Go ahead and set our dust cap into position. Once we get our dust cap lined up, use a small block of wood and go ahead and tap it into position. Now we'll go ahead and repeat the same process over on the other side, but this time we'll be using the brake assembly, Part Number TRBK10E02 which is for the right-hand side of the trailer. Now that we have everything assembled, we're going to need to adjust the brakes. We'll need to remove this little plastic or rubber plug here. To do that, we'll take a screwdriver and slide in underneath it, pry the little rubber plug out and then see a little star gear in there. Go ahead and take our brake tool here. A large flat-head screwdriver could work as well. The brake tool's designed for it, though. As we're turning the brake, we'll go ahead and adjust it so that we stop the brake by adjusting it all the way out. As you can see, the drum doesn't turn anymore because we've gotten it all the way tightened down here in the back. Once you have it set at this point, you'll want to release it or back it off 10 clicks, the little star gear that you tightened up. Once you have the star gear backed off, you want to go ahead and check it by spinning the drum and you want to feel a slight resistance or the brake shoe's just barely touching on the drum. We have just a little bit of resistance, so we're pretty good. We'll go ahead and put the plug back in the back side of the backing plate. Now let's go ahead and point out our wiring. You'll notice that there's two wires that come out of the back side of the brake assembly. We'll need to connect our wires that come from the front of the trailer. Now, on this trailer, the black wire is the positive wire, or the brake signal wire, and the white wire is the ground. You'll notice that there's another wire. This wire here runs over to the passenger side, so we'll need to tie this in when we make our connections. Now on these two green wires, it doesn't matter which wire goes to the positive or the negative, as it is going to a magnet, so it doesn't matter, so we'll go ahead and strip some wire back and make our connections using some heat shrink-style black connectors, Part Number DW05745-5. Now that we have our green wires tied in one side of the wiring, we'll go ahead and match up the white wire with the white wire, crimp down the butt connector, and the black wire with the black wire. There's a couple of different ways that we can seal up these butt connectors. You can use a lighter, as we'll do on the first butt connector. If using a lighter, you want to make sure that you keep the heat source moving, as you can easily burn the wires; or you can use a heat gun, like we use here on the second butt connector. We're going to go ahead and put some electrical tape over our connections just for a little extra protection. Got that done, going to take a couple of zip ties and help secure up any excess wiring. Once we have that done, we'll go ahead and snip off any excess zip tie to clean up our install look. Now we'll go ahead and move over to the other side, where we'll repeat the same process. Now we're going to go ahead and use our tester here to check the electric brakes. If you don't have a tester, you can use your tow vehicle with your brake controller. We'll go ahead and spin the drum and have someone turn on the electric brakes. As you can see here, it stops them just fine. We'll go ahead and check the other side. As you can see here, both sides are working just fine. Now all that's left to do is reinstall our wheels and we're ready to hit the road, and that'll do it for the installation of the Dexter axle trailer hub and drum assembly, Part Number 84556UC3. .

I ordered new Brake Hubs and Brake backing plates. After a year and constant use, these are still holding strong. There is no substitute for 4-wheel braking on any dual axle trailer. I highly recommend upgrading any two wheel axle brakes to 4 wheel braking. They work! Thank you etrailer. 443345

Ask the Experts about this Dexter Axle Trailer Hubs and Drums

  • Recommendation For Extra Hub/Drum For Dexter 8-249 Hubs
    Dexter 8-249 hubs normally have inner bearings like Item # L68149 and outer bearings like Item # L44649. If these are your bearings (the size will be stamped on them) then it sounds like you need Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly Item # 84556UC3 by Dexter which also has 8-249 stamped on them. This hub and drum assembly fits a 5 on 5 bolt pattern. You may also need Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly Item # AKHD-555-35-K which fits a 5 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern. Be sure and check your bolt pattern...

  • Replacement Axles and Leaf Springs for Tandem Axle Trailer
    It is possible the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with E-Z Lube Spindles # 7359765 will work for you, so long as your current axles are rated for 3,500 lbs, have a hub-face to hub-face length of 95" and spring center to spring center length of 80"; you can use the diagram I have added to know where you need to measure. Additionally, because this has EZ Lube spindles you will need to add Grease Caps # RG04-040 to make your Hub and Drum Assemblies # 84556UC3 compatible. As for your leaf...

  • How Far Does the Dexter Hub # 84556UC3 Center Bore Extend From the Mounting Face of Hub?
    I went out to the warehouse to measure the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly - 3,500-lb Axles - 5 on 5 # 84556UC3 and the center bore will stick out 1-3/4 inches from the hub face and the dust cap will add 7/8 inch. These hubs will work well on the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with EZ-Lube Spindles - 89" Long - 3,500 lbs # T3584F-EZ-8974. For your brake assemblies, I recommend the Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Self-Adjusting - 10" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 3,500 lbs # AKEBRK-35-SA...

  • Hub and Drum Assembly for 3,500 Pound Axle with 6 on 5-1/2 Bolt Pattern Hub Group 8-250
    The 8-250 hub and drum assemblies are unique in that they feature that 6 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern normally seen on higher capacity hubs. For a replacement you can use # 84656UC3. The bearings, races, and seal are included. You will also get a grease cap and new lug nuts with it. If your trailer has EZ lube axles with the grease fittings at the ends then you would need # 84656UC3-EZ instead. I have linked a couple of videos on these assemblies for you to check out.

  • Does 84556UC3 Come with 1 or 2 Hub and Drum Assemblies?
    The Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 84556UC3 is a single Hub and Drum assembly. We do not offer them sold in pairs, so you would need to purchase 2 individually if you're going to replace the parts on an entire axle. I've linked the installation video for this product to this answer. You could also go with the # AKHD-550-35-K , which is a more economical Hub and Drum assembly. If you also need a brake recommendation for your trailer, the # AKEBRK-35L and # AKEBRK-35R is a great...

    The outer diameter of the center bore of the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly, # 84556UC3, is 2.67 inches. Most trailer wheels with a 5 on 5 inch bolt pattern have a center bore diameter of 3.19 inches, so you should not have trouble finding a wheel that will fit. We had this hub and drum assembly in stock, so I pulled it to get some additional information for you. As I stated, the bolt pattern is 5 on 5 inches.

  • 89 inch Trailer Axle, 5 on 5 inch Bolt Pattern Hub and Leaf Spring Recommendation
    To get a 89 inch long axle you would want the part # T3584F-EZ-8974 for an axle that does not come with hubs and then for hubs you would want the part # 84556UC3 for a brake hub with a 5 on 5 inch bolt pattern or for an idler hub # 84550BX. Since this is a 3,500 lb axle you would want the same rated leaf springs. The # SP-212275 is a 3,500 lb spring that would work well for you. For a tandem axle hanger kit you would want the part # APT3 and for a u-bolt kit you would want the # APUBR-1.

We offer one 10 x 2-1/4 inch brake drum with a 5 on 5 bolt pattern, part # 84556UC3 for a standard or # 84556UC3-EZ for an EZ-Lube spindle. If your existing hub uses an #L68149 inner and an # L44649 outer wheel bearing, either of these hubs would be compatible.

  • Timbren Axle Less System and Hub with 5 on 5 inch Bolt Pattern Recommendation
    First thing you will need to know to determine the correct Timbren system will be the total axle capacity you would need for your trailer. We have ones that range from 1,200 lbs up to 7,000 lbs. We don't have a ton of hubs with a 5 on 5 inch bolt pattern, but if you went with a 3,500 lb Timbren system like part # ASR3500S06 you could use the part # 84556UC3 for a hub/drum or part # 84550BX for just a hub. The # ASR3500S06 has a 4 inch lift built into it so it would be great for an...

  • Can Brakes be Installed on Only One of the Axles of a Tandem Axle Trailer
    Brakes can be installed on only one axle of a tandem axle trailer, however you should first check your state laws to see how many brakes are required for the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of your tandem axle trailer. Some states require a specific number of brakes based on the maximum weight capacity of a trailer. If you are able to install brakes on only one axle, I recommend installing them on the front axle if you use a torsion axle or on the rear axle if you are using tubular...

  • Replacing Hubs on Trailer with Unusual Bolt Pattern Recommendation
    First we have to figure out what spindle you have on your trailer to determine what hub/drum could fit it and then build from there to complete the setup. To this you will need to remove a hub from the axle and either get the bearing numbers or the dimensions of the spindle where the bearings and grease seal ride. See the attached picture. From there you will want to check out the help article I attached that will walk you through the rest of steps to adding the brake assemblies...

  • Replacement Hub/Drums and Wheel/Tires for 2002 CargoMate Eliminator Tandem Axle Trailer
    Usually a trailer axle will have a sticker or plate on it to indicate its weight rating. This may not be on the VIN sticker but it should be on at least one of your two axles. If not, contacting the manufacturer (Forest River, 574-264-4519) with the trailer VIN will let them determine what they installed initially. However, bear in mind that if the trailer has been in use for a really long time (as much as 14 years potentially) there is a chance that the original axle was replaced. If...

  • Hub and Drum for a Dexter 3,500 Lb Axle with 5 on 5 Inch Bolt Pattern
    The correct hub/drum for your Dexter 3,500 lb axle is more than likely going to be the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly part # 84556UC3 or part # 84556UC3-EZ (E-Z Lube). The L68149/L44649 bearings and 10-19 grease seal that this kit uses is fairly standard for this axle. However, there are certain instances in which this is not the case.

  • How To Measure the Bolt Pattern on a 15 Inch Wheel With 5 Lug Bolt Holes
    When measuring to determine the bolt pattern of a wheel with an odd number of lugs, like a 5 lug wheel, you are basically measuring the diameter of a circle that would run through the center of each lug hole. If you are measuring the wheel the easiest way is to measure the distance between the center of one lug hole to the center of the lug hole adjacent to it, then look on the chart and if that measurement is 2-5/8 inches the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-1/2. If it measures 3 inches the bolt...

  • Selecting Replacement Hubs and Wheels/Tires for 5 x 8-foot Utility Trailer
    We do offer 5-on-5 hubs that you can see on the included link. All are indeed rated for 3500-lb axles as you suggested; please note that your axle should have a sticker or plate on it that tells you its weight rating. These include idler hubs (no brakes) like # 84550BX and # 84545UC1-EZ that you referenced, and hub/drum assemblies like # 84556UC3 for drum brakes. You'll need to make sure that any new hubs you select use the same inner and outer bearings as those on the trailer now....

  • How to Determine the Bolt Pattern of a Trailer Wheel or Hub
    There isn't a bolt pattern, at least not one used any more that I am aware of, that has a 2-7/8 inch measurement from bolt hole center to adjacent bolt hole center. Could it actually be 2-3/4 inches? If so that would indicate a 5 on 4-3/4 bolt pattern. A 5 on 4-3/4 inch is still rare. I have included a link to the options we have for hubs and for wheels. I have also included a link to a help article on how to determine bolt pattern.

  • Trailer Hub/Drum Recommendation with 5 on 5 inch Bolt Pattern
    Yes, if you have a 3,500 lb trailer axle we have the hub/drum part # 84556UC3 that has a 5 on 5 inch bolt pattern like you mentioned wanting. For a set of brake assemblies that fit this hub we have the part # 23-468-469.

  • 3,500 lb Trailer Axle Recommendation with 5 on 5 inch Bolt Pattern
    Based on the dimensions you listed the # 35545E-ST-EZ-89 would fit your trailer since it is overall the correct length and has the correct length between the spring seats. The hubs of this axle have a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern so you would need to verify that you have the same bolt pattern on your current wheels. I attached a help article that details how to determine bolt pattern. It sounds like you have a 5 on 5 inch bolt pattern though so you would need to go a different route....

  • How to Add Surge Brakes to a Boat Trailer with Idler Hubs
    Since you have a brake mounting flange on your boat trailer you could pretty easily install brakes on the trailer. Most likely the mounting flange is a 4 bolt flange (all 4 bolt flanges are the same), since your trailer is most likely not too heavy if it didn't come with brakes. You should have no problem with the inner fender well either since they aren't currently interfering with your brake mounting flanges. The wheel assembly will sit in the exact same position with hub drums on...

  • How to Pick Out a 5 on 5 inch Hub for a M416 Trailer
    In order to pick out the correct hub assembly for a trailer you are going to need know a few key pieces of information. You will need to know what spindle you have on your trailer. In order to do that you can either get the inner and outer bearing numbers from a hub or use a dial caliper to get exact measurements of the spindle. The measurements needed are the parts of the spindle where the bearings ride. If you get back to me with that information I will help you pick out the right...

  • Measuring Bolt Pattern On Drum Assembly
    I went to our warehouse and pulled a couple of the Dexter Hub And Drum Assemblies, part # 84556UC3. I took measurements between the bolts on the drums and took a photo you can check out. The measurement I got was 2.997 as the photo shows on the digital caliper. The measurements varied approximately .001 inches which can be due to where I placed the caliper. If you would like to send me a photo of the drum you have showing the measurement I can possibly help further. I have attached...

  • Can Magnet or Armature Surface of Wheel Hub/Drums Be Machined
    The surface of the brake drum where the brake pads contact can be machined, but the inside surface where the magnet rides, which is called the armature surface cannot. If the armature surface is grooved, discolored or pitted, you'll want to replace the hub/drum. If you'd care to reply with the reference numbers of your inner and outer wheel bearing, as well as the bolt pattern of your wheels, I'd be happy to make a recommendation for replacement hubs.

  • Do I Need Brakes On Both Axles of a Car Hauler Trailer?
    In some situations, brakes can be installed on only one axle of a tandem axle trailer, however you should first check your state laws to see how many brakes are required for the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of your tandem axle trailer. Some states require a specific number of brakes based on the maximum weight capacity of a trailer. If you are allowed to install brakes on only one axle, which axle you install them on depends on what type of axles you have on your trailer. If you...

  • Timbren Axle Less System Recommendation for Off Road Trailer with 5 on 5 inch Bolt Pattern
    We don't have a ton of hubs with a 5 on 5 inch bolt pattern, but if you went with a 3,500 lb Timbren system like part # ASR3500S06 you could use the part # 84556UC3 for a hub/drum or part # 84550BX for just a hub. The # ASR3500S06 has a 4 inch lift built into it so it would be great for an offroad trailer.
